Red Hot Love

It’s time for those red hot Valentine shoes! And even better, they’re all under $50!

Christian Siriano from the Runway

As most of you probably already know, I love Christian Siriano. Love love love him. I loved him when he was on Project Runway, and I love him even more as a shoe designer for Payless. For us girls on a budget, we don’t have the luxury of dropping hundreds of dollars on a single pair of shoes. But that doesn’t mean we can’t look like we did.

Here are some looks straight from the runway, all the way to Payless for us budget girls to snatch up.

Oh, and let’s not forget one other little piece of information:

Bogo

Yep. That’s pretty much the best thing ever. Moving on.

CynthiaSling

Women’s Cynthia Sling

$54.99

Seriously, I can’t take it anymore. This slingback is gorgeous.

PolinaBow

Women’s Polina Bow Flat

If you’re into the adorable pattern on the Cynthia sling and you wanted flats instead (or if you want both, like me!) they’ve got a super cute flat with some attitude.

CamileBow

For something a bit tamer, bit with a nice green pop

HadleyTStrap

Boot Season Begins at Payless

To bring in this wonderful Boot Season, let’s see what else Payless has.

I’m Back!

After all these months… I’m back!!!

Even with as busy as I’ve been, I just couldn’t walk away from this blog. I find that people are still asking me about the best deals on shoes and where to find them, so I have to keep this updated for everyone to see!

And besides, this just gives me an added excuse to buy more shoes! (for rating purposes, of course) 😉

So, time to get back into the deals!

As you know, it’s October, which means… BOOT SEASON! In my opinion, boots and jackets are really the only good thing about the cold weather.

I actually just picked up these babies from Payless:

New Year’s Discounts

For anyone who lives on the East Coast, you guys have an idea of what the weather has been like here. Living in an area that’s not used to snow, getting 14 inches is quite an accomplishment. Add on the 400+ accidents on the road and suddenly the snow isn’t nearly as enjoyable.

So…I decided to finally join AAA.

Why didn’t I do this sooner!?!? Here are some of the discounts I’ll be getting with my membership:

Banana Republic Factory Stores, Gap Outlets, New York & Company, Payless, Shoes.com, and Target.com!

So on top of being covered behind the wheel, I now have even more discounts to add to my shoe purchases!

This Weekend’s Purchases

This was a great weekend for me. I bought 5 pairs of shoes!! Some of these will be familiar to you from recent posts…

Saturday I went to DSW to help a friend pick out some shoes. Naturally I left with 3 pairs.

Rampage Nicki Fashion Pump

$29.99

Steve Madden Alisha Pump

$59.99

Madden Girl Baallet Zippered Ruffle Pump

$39.99

I’ve already worn the Rampage flowered pumps today while shopping for 3 hours with no problems. They are super comfortable!

While at the mall today I picked up 2 pairs of shoes I’ve had my eye on from Payless, finally!

Lela Rose for Payless

Bow Fashion Pump

$34.99

Christian Siriano for Payless

Coast Printed Satin Pump

$34.99

I’m so excited about all of these that I don’t know which ones to wear tomorrow!!

Keep an eye out for these at Payless

I love how often I am happily surprised now by Payless. These designer collaborations are really bringing their name back, and let’s face it, their new shoes are great. I remember when I was in middle school I had a pair of shoes from Payless, and I was so embarrassed about it that I wouldn’t admit it to anyone. Now I can’t wait to tell people that the stylish shoes I’m rockin’ are from Payless. The looks on their faces are always so great!

I think now more than ever we should all be proud of keeping a budget and choosing to spend less money. It’s responsible, it’s smart, and it’s really a rewarding feeling to know that you were able to put together a super trendy outfit on a super small budget. These notions were the only thing that got me through college, and even my first-job-straight-out-of-college-not-making-nearly-enough-money rough patch.

My theory is, no matter how much or how little money you make, you need to reward yourself. Learning how to do that without going overboard is what makes you a smarter shopper. Sure, you spend a little extra time doing more research and finding those great deals, but you are MUCH less likely to have buyer’s remorse from a $30 pair of shoes as opposed to a $300 pair. And you’ll make all your friends jealous when they find out how LITTLE you spent.

And here’s a few options for your personal reward to yourself…if you so choose 🙂
